BroadForward Equipment Identity Register (EIR)

BroadForward Equipment Identity Register (EIR)

The BroadForward Next Generation EIR provides operators with a single, unified access point for Mobile Equipment authentication in the network, supporting 2G / 3G and 4G / LTE and 5G. The product is designed to enable an independent, centralized EIR function accross technologies (unlike ‘on-board’ EIR functions on HSS, HLR, VLR, STP, SMSC etc.). The NG EIR is based on a unique, integrated and multi-purpose software design which is fully virtualized. Furthermore the NG EIR supports multiple protocols including Diameter, SS7 and HTTP. The BroadForward Next generation EIR supports all relevant 3GPP specifications for EIR including TS 22.016, TS 29.272, TS 23.401, TS 23.060 and TS 29.002.
